During the 1980s, the Los Angeles Lakers won five NBA championships (1980, 1982, 1985, 1987, 1988), but it was how they won that held our attention. With their patented "Showtime" fast breaks, the team that starred Magic Johnson and Kareem Abdul Jabbar exhausted, then pulverized defenders. Jeff Pearlman's lively book on this exciting franchise decade entails more than recaps of run-and-gun offenses; with hundreds of interviews, he takes us into the friendships, rivalries, and even the off-the-court hijinks of these fabled players. Our best view yet of an incomparable combine.
